Lone Wolf: The Life and Death of U-Boat Ace Werner&hellip by Timothy P. Mulligan

5.0 out of 5 stars Lone Wolf, 14 Dec 2002
This book has been thoroughly researched and well written. Werner Henke was quite a colourful character of the U-Boat service; often having problems with authority.
He was however highly thought of by Admiral Donitz for his leadership abilities and mentioned by name in his own memoirs, for the Commanders brilliance.
The book lists Wenke's exploits, how he was captured and his death; after a breakout from a POW camp. The Book is well worth reading; and therefore value for money.

This book is the personal account, the author commanded two U-boats. Like the Hirschfeld book, deals with his entry into the German Navy and his rise to Commander from Ensign.
It also looks at some interesting developments in the U-Boat campaign both Schorchels & Radar detectors and their subsequent failure, due to there not being enough of them.
For anyone interested in the U-boat war, this is one the must have books.
